A guy I played a game of apo last weekend told me he have some guardsmen he want to sell. Everything is assembled and prime in white. It's the first time I'm interested in used models so I don't know how much it is worth. Can somebody give me an idea of how much I should pay. Here's what he have.
-38 guardsmen, 4 have laspistol and chain blade
-8 vox caster
-4 flamer, 4 grenade launcher, 3 plasmagun, 3 meltagun, 2 snipers
-1 techpriest, 1 banner, 1commissar, 1 medic
-7 officers, 2 have powerfist and 3 have plasma pistol
-Creed and Kell
-15 stormtrooper with hot-shot, 2 with grenade launcher, 1 with plasmagun, 1 with flamer, 1 with meltagun, 3 sergeant
-4 mortar, 3 missile launcher, 3 lascannon and 3 base that have been magnetised with different guns
-1 forge world hellhound
Forgeworld Hell Hound would be a nice buy, just check out the quality on it.
Sorry I diddn't mention that I already have a Mech army and what I need to make an on foot list is pratically what is in the deal
The value of the items is how much you are prepared to pay for them, if the guy has only undercoated them lightly, and they are made well without glue smears or mold lines. Then you can't expect to get them much (if any) cheaper than they cost brand new in the shop (unless he doesn't know the value.) by experience, I know people will pay as much as it costs in the shop to buy well made unpainted models (if not more money) on ebay.
My general rule of them is that for models put together and unpainted, I look for about 30%-40% off the market value. I can just buy a brand-new box for 20-25% without looking that hard for them so I look for a deal when I order used models.
Personally, I'm not impressed on what is being offered.
You'll still have to buy infantry sets, and depending on your style of play, you'll probably end up not using half of the models anyway.
The question is how much is your friend is offering the pieces for, not how much you should pay for them.
You'll be be off buying a few models which are useful to you, rather than buying the whole lot.
